morning, everyone. we get an interesting perspective on this from john mccain. he's debated both the president and mitt romney, and he says we will see two very strong well-prepared candidates and in his prediction, few surprises. the president's behind closed doors in nevada for the next two days preparing to face mitt romney in denver wednesday. >> he's a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing. >> reporter: both sides are downplaying expectations. a senior aide to the president says romney will be prepared, disciplined and aggressive. romney's debate partner calls the president a tough debater. >> barack obama is going to be formidable and i think it will be a good debate, but i certainly would not underestimate what barack obama brings to it. >> reporter: john kerry's playing romney with the president. in a weekend memory, republicans urged kerry to press the president on libya and syria. in today's "wall street journal" romney calls president obama's foreign policy dang
. the debates sure matter in 2008. going in, obama and republican challenger john mccain were neck in neck. post debates gave obama victories in each case. he soared from there. >> what do we do now? we hear all these polls. the obama cam says we like these polls because they're ahead. the romney campaign says you know what? they're insignificant. what do you think? >> they are and they aren't. a six-point spread among likely voters is not that impressive. it is within the margin of error. but obama's showing is most impressive in those swing states like ohio, florida and pennsylvania. the winner has got to win at least one, preferably at least two to make it. now he has double digit or near double digit leads in each of them. all of which places incredible pressure on mitt romney to change the course of the campaign. >> so what's the game plan for each one of the candidates at the debates? >> okay. the first debate is on domestic policy. fine. that should be romney's bread and butter. he has to find a way to return to his message on the economy. what is the message? mainly that whatever the mes
, john mccain wasn't the best debater either. >> i talked to nathan sproul, how much ground romney has to gain, could be as much as seven points, that's a lot to gain through a debate performance. two guys can be well prepared, one sitting president. >> he did against bush. >> it is not the debate, what is it for mitt romney in the last five weeks of the campaign to change it. >> i think he has to go big, has to have a couple of really big ideas that connect with the american people and where they are. the economy is slowly getting better. there are real doubts about the medicare plan paul ryan put in place, it is beginning to hurt them in battleground states. i don't think there's one thing that can turn it around for him except the ufo theory which i keep coming back to. just had it again with the terrorist attack on the libyan embassy. things like that can change the elections very quickly. you remember when john kerry ran against george bush on the friday before the election, osama bin laden came out with a screen against america, and people were sticking with what they know on nat
